In Response To: Broccoli and thyroid (Eileen (O+))
Hi Eileen -
On page 40 of CR4YT, Dr. D says -
"The Brassica family - cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and mustard greens- can affect thyroid function, which is already somewhat deficient in Type O's. Leafy green vegetables rich in Vitamin K, like kale, collard greens, romaine lettuce, BROCCOLI and spinach are very good for Type O's. Vitamin K helps blood clot, and Type O's lack several clotting factors."
So, it seems he puts broccoli in the leafy green category and not in the Brassica family category.
Hope this helps,
